Police are appealing for information and witnesses following the attempted murder of a man in Brent.

“We are now keen to trace the silver Mercedes vehicle as well as the occupants seen travelling in this vehicle. We would also like to speak to anyone who could identify the men involved in the initial argument or who knew the occupants of the Ford Focus.
“Following previous appeals we are aware that some witnesses may have unwittingly removed items from the scene - either from the vehicles or the road side. We appeal to those people to come forward and return any items as soon as possible.”
